Trace the heritage? Dude (or dudette), this is a guy who never heard of the Beatles. He thinks Jurassic Park is a band. He's got a long way to go before he's tracing any heritage to blues singers :-) That's partly why this is so funny to me ... I just have no baseline to go on in terms of his taste (if any)!

Gosh, just think of the musical vistas you could open up for someone who's never heard American music! Throw in some Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, John Prine, some Motown, Miles Davis, Zappa, Stevie Ray Vaughan... anything blues or jazz, just omit the disco and rap shit. I would be handing this guy stacks of CDs...

I'm more of a Mac guy, but work with both platforms... and know WinXP better than Vista... but I've always found Windows Media Player to be a bugger. I think it has problems managing a variety of file types, i.e. .mp3 and .mv4 etc. If you have another program for burning CD's, like Nero, try that instead of the Windows product.

and congrats on a very interesting venture, you must be a really hardy soul.

Hardy or nuts. I did spend a fair amount of time chasing a certain not-exactly-hip-or-glamorous band around, and I still listen to the stuff eons later, so that may tip the balance towards "nuts" ...

Wait - they're not hip and glamorous?
I was misled.

Only Jerry. He was a fashion trendsetter, of course. Why do you think everyone in NYC wears black?

Good points. I am too optimistic about human nature, and the desire of people to learn. :-) [Dude, BTW -- though it seems an odd term to use; in my day it was only 'guys']

I don't think it's a lack of desire to learn, but I think the context he could bring to it is just so basic -- no knowledge of Elvis, Beatles, Stones, etc -- that to get to that place on the learning curve where you're looking at older blues is just such a steep climb that it's hard to envision. Maybe someday, but not any time soon.

Dude and dudette goes back to at least the early 80s! You must be up there with Tuli Kupferberg, then :-)

Not quite that old, though I do remember the Fugs (never saw them but always admired their in your face iconoclasm).

Born in '52, heard Live Dead when it came out and didn't like it, but got on the bus with WD early in 1970. Everything after the hiatus is "late" Dead, in my mind.

The band is important to me primarily because of its role in the utopian vision of psychedelic transcendence, 1966-1973. In my heart of hearts I feel the hippies were right, and that the world has never recovered from Richard Nixon.

But then maybe I'm just another old fart clinging to a nostalgic view of his youth.
